My Happy Year by E. Bluebird


Author: Paul Meisel

May 1. Today is my birthday. So begins the wondrous first year of E. Bluebird. Readers are treated to the intimate details of her life such as May 8: Eating all these bugs makes me poop. Mom takes my poop sack out of the nest. Good thing. And May 12: My brothers and sisters are getting ready to leave the nest. I like it here. Its safe. On May 18: Wheres my family? Im getting hungry. Okay. This is it! I jump! I flap! Im flying! She eventually migrates south, and when she returns north, she finds a mate and has a family of her own. What a happy year!
